Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,

and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,

be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;

and listen to others,

even to the dull and the ignorant;

they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons;

they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,

you may become vain or bitter,

for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;

it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,

for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;

many persons strive for high ideals,

and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love,

for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,

it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,

gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,

be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe

no less than the trees and the stars;

you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,

no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,

whatever you conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations,

in the noisy confusion of life,

keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Comment by Brewcity Drum n Bass, loven u! on May 16, 2013 at 12:14am

to all family, My wife and I are expecting our child in july and living off the grid is something we need to find a way to do asap. How does one have children in modern society and then disappear from the Babylonian limelight especially since were very poor, barely have a working vehicle and its sad to say we do rely on the government for health care and other state benefits. That said, I have no proble telling uncle sam to go smoke a pole but in doing soafter receiving benefits, jumping through their bullshit hoops a few shitty repercussions may come into play. At some point after receiving  benefits the gov requires us to work some full time job, while takin it up the backside from their social workers and their so called investigators and their appointed daycare programs. I guess in all fairness, sure workin that job is a way to pay them back. At the same time her and I will have to deal with their social workers. But, at some point we will definitely want to flip em the Dueces and hit it on them so My wife, child and I can return to living off the grid as we have always done before. So in closing how did you make it possible to raise your children off the grid? Home school? Friends and family helped with daycare? What about Medical? This blog may be long and drawn out so I do apologize but we are seriously in need of some help or advice. As always, Lovin You :-)

Anyone have info on tipis and other alternative shelters one can build or construct fairly easily. Tired of these concrete walls and suburbia. Anyone been to Kashi ashram in Sebastian?

I am very curious about this and have promised myself I will try this, after college maybe, until then I am eager to learn about it so that i'd be a great room mate (is there another name for someone living in a commune with you?)

Hello everyone. I'm from New England originally, now in CO. This is my 2nd time here and enjoying very much how I am BEing, who I'm meeting while BEing. Many good minds, gentle souls I've encountered in my journey. I feel that the people I'm meeting are more likely related to who I'm announcing I want to meet. Life is good.

What does a video of a preacher have to do with Intentional Community? Something of a mis-post eh?
